Law Review, 2012-13 Version

Posted by David Logan on 08/31/2012 at 12:02 PM

Over the decades, the most prestigious accomplishment in law school is membership on the Law Review.  Staffers are selected in a highly competitive process that considers both 1L grades and performance on a writing exercise.  The 2L members assist with editorial work for the journal and write a “note,” while 3L members oversee the actual production of the law review issues, including the all-important task of selecting articles for publication. 

Many law reviews, like ours, dedicate entire issues to single topics, and feature the top academics in their fields; in the last decade alone, the Roger Williams Law Review has published symposia on such important topics as popular constitutionalism, judicial selection in Rhode Island, tort reform, terrorism, religious liberty, fisheries, and criminal sentencing.  The Journal has published work by nationally-known academics, and, because of our unique role as the only law school in the state, articles authored by leading public servants, like United States Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and past Chief Justices of the Rhode Island Supreme Court Joseph Weisberger and Frank Williams.
